We took our 2 toddlers in the jogging stroller. While the second half was definitely harder, it was still doable with a great payoff of nice views. If taking a stroller I suggest going early to avoid crowds, going back when it was more crowded proved difficult managing the double stroller with crowds.

Great short hike. The first leg is family friendly, but after the turn onto Mustard Rd, the hike gets a little more difficult. The payoff is decent as you are able to see the snow on the mountains off in the distance, but only barely. Next time I will try for a trail closer to the snow.

Easy hike in, but a steep uphill climb once you turn onto Mustard Road. The hike flattens out when you get to the Vista Lookout turn.
Enjoyable, with a great view (and breeze) when you get to the top.
